A natural tooth consists of a root and a crown. If you compare natural teeth to implant-supported replacement teeth, you'll see they have the same basic parts. Both have a crown (the visible part used to chew food).
There are various causes of gum recession including vigorous tooth brushing, wearing tongue jewelry, periodontal disease, or orthodontic treatment.
Crown lengthening reshapes the gum and bone levels to expose more of the natural tooth which is necessary to be properly restored.
